A New Local Plan

North Lincolnshire Council is preparing a new single Local Plan for North Lincolnshire. Once agreed (formally adopted), it will replace the current North Lincolnshire Local Plan, the Core Strategy and the Housing and Employment Land Allocations Development Plan Documents (DPDs).

Stage 3 - Preferred Options of the North Lincolnshire Local Plan has recently completed public consultation for six weeks. All comments and Call for Sites received are currently being assessed. A Summary of Written Representations report will be available shortly. Please see Stages for further detail.
